I'm guessing your talking about the differential? Try putting some fluid in it. Maybe it's low?

Are you referring to the "dogbone", highlighted below?



It doesn't support anything, it's just an NVH thing bolted to the differential housing nose--I took mine off 6 years ago.

NVH, Noise/Vibration/Harshness...

It is a harmonic damper. Simplified, its mass absorbs drivetrain vibrations to reduce NVH. I never experimented with it to determine how effective it is, then again I never noticed any significant increase in noise after removing it.

I want to replace my damper but since ford don't make it anymore I have to Remove it and go without a damper. I'm going to do some serious driving tonight & will see if I'm have any vibration noise or what
